From the President 

Dear Alums, 

Thank you for the success of the 
annual solicitation drive. Once again 
you have surpassed your previous 
record, as 540 additional donors 
remembered their Alma Mater. 1257 
alumni contributed $25,221. 

This number represents 34% of all 
our alumni and is very good. But 
we need to push for more partici- 
pation for Avila. As you give, so 
will business and industry and this 
is especially important now as we 
begin the fund drive for the new 
library building. A goal of 100% 
cooperation seems impossible, but 
we are led by dreams of the 

Enrollment is up— 1841 students 
this fall, 141 more than fall of 
1975 and we are operating with 
a budget of $3, 1 50,000. 

So, please continue to support 
Avila with your good will. Come 
back to Homecoming and let us 
see you. Let us say "welcome 


Sister Olive Louise, CSJ 


Students stroll in the fall sunshine 
on campus near Marian Centre, 
which houses the cafeteria, the 
student centre, the snack bar and 
game area, and the bookstore. 

According to the architect's rendering, 
the new library building will be 
similar in style to Marian Centre. 

Come, see all the changes at Avila.

A Future Library 





Have we got a weekend planned for you when you return for Homecoming 
this year. There's a tour of "old campus" on Friday evening, a family 
day Saturday on the new campus, culminating with a Mass and Brunch 
on Sunday morning, and two vocal concerts on Sunday afternoon. 
October 22, 23 and 24 will be great days for the alumni and their guests. 

For the first time. Homecoming ceremonies will include both alumni 
and students, so as to encompass all facets of Avila's population, 
according to Geraldine Sulzer '55, and her student co-chairman, 
Christopher Herring 78. 

Leading the schedule of events will be a welcome back to "old campus", 
St. Teresa's at 5600 Main, from 7 to 10 p.m. on October 22. Former 
faculty members will be on hand to greet you, refreshments will be 
served, and at 8 p.m., Avila students hope to take you back a few years 
as you watch their nostalgic program in the auditorium. 

^Saturday, the day on new campus, promises something for everyone, 
beginning with a fashion show in the Goppert Theatre at 11 a.m. 

At noon, luncheon will be available in Marian Centre for those of you 
who wish it. 

From 2 to 3 p.m., the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet invite you to 
visit their residence, Foyle Hall. 

At 3 p.m., get ready to root for Avila during the powder puff football 
game with Rockhurst on the Avila field. There will be half-time entertain- 
ment, and rides and games for the kiddies. 

At 5 p.m., bring your family to the barbecue in the grove ($2.00 per 
person), and that's not all. The open air polka party starting at six will 
keep you stomping until 10 p.m. 

On Sunday, October 24, will come the serious highpoint of the gathering — 
Mass in Foyle Hall at 9:30 a.m. Brunch in Marian Centre from 1 1 to 12:30 
will follow, wherein the Classes of 1926, 1951 and 1966 will be honored 
(Brunch is $3.25 per person). 

kChoral recitals at 2:30 and at 4 p.m. in the Goppert Theatre conclude 
the festivities. 

Reservations for any or all events should be made by Wednesday, 
October 20. Please call 942-8400. 

Alumni members of the Homecoming committee are Dorothy Brandt 
Marra '52, Jean Day '71 , Julie Waters McManus '67, Mary Pat Beck '68, 
Mary Ann Caffrey 75, Linda Hageman '67, Katie O'Neill '52, Mary Ann 
Meiners '52 and Moira Fallon 75. 



Dear Fellow Alums, 

A sincere "Thank You" comes first: 

. . .to all our members who were donors and telephone 
solicitors in our recent Continuing Support Drive. This 
year the number of donors and the amount were both 
greatly increased. 

. . .to Geraldine Sulzer and the Homecoming Com- 
mittee. Much has gone into the plans for the 
Student-Alumni weekend. The steering committee will 
evaluate the results of this Homecoming, so if you 
have thoughts on plans for future events, please 
contact Geraldine Sulzer or Tom Lease, Director of 
Student Activities at Avila. 

. . .to Sheila Eikerman and Carolyn Reinhart, co- 
chairmen of the Bridge Marathon. If you missed getting 
into the group this year, plan to join us next fall! 

The College is starting a new project — the long- 
awaited library. Our Alumni Board has voted to designate 
part of our 1977 Alumni Solicitation for this building 
fund. We will be hearing more about these plans 

The Alumni Board decided to hold no Campus Revisited 
this year. We are encouraging our members to take 
part in Continuing Education courses offered by the 
College. If you would like more information concerning 
these classes, please contact Susan Imel, Director of 
Continuing Education at Avila. 

Hope to see you at Homecoming, October 22-24! 

Mary Jo Podrebarac, 

Alumni President 



Alumni were generous with time and money this year, as over 100 alumni 
called others in the Spring telethon, and 1257 members contributed $25,221 
in the annual solicitation drive. 

>ister Rose Anthony Schmitt, alumni secretary, wishes to thank all who so 
'graciously participated in the telethon. She says "It was truly a joy to work 
with such dedicated people."
